Winding Waves Woven Bracelet- Loom (or No-Loom) Bead Weaving Jewelry Tutorial

It turns out I didn’t know what I was missing when I passed by bead looming designs for all those years.

Not only does the work go quickly, but the design possibilities are endless.

In today’s video I show how to plan and create a basic beaded bracelet, made with 8/0 seed beads on a beading loom. I also show how easy it is to do if you don’t have a loom.

There may just be a few calculation errors, left in for your amusement. Because we’re not perfect, and things don’t always turn out as planned.

As a friend (also a creative person) often says, “It’s not what you can make, it’s what you can FIX.”
